CINTERION Joins Continua Health Alliance to Drive Growth of mHealth Technology Worldwide

MUNICH – November 17, 2010 – CINTERION, the worldwide leading supplier of cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) communication modules, announced today that it proudly joins the Continua Health Alliance to help establish an ecosystem of interoperable health solutions that empower people and organizations to better manage health and wellness. CINTERION has been a pioneering force in mHealth wireless communications technology and now joins more than 200 of the world’s finest healthcare and technology companies to improve worldwide accessibility of personal health information and help revolutionize the global healthcare system.

 

With CINTERION’s award-winning M2M technology, medical devices and wellness applications can send and receive critical health data securely and reliably over wireless mobile networks utilizing the latest encryption technologies and security mechanisms inherent in modern cellular networks. CINTERION’s market-proven communications modules are flexible, highly reliable and serve all medical industry requirements — from small form factor products that easily integrate into existing solutions to scalable and Java™-enabled modules for onboard processing and secure over-the-air updates.

 

“By stepping up our collaborative efforts, we can accelerate the development and implementation of portable, wireless, medical devices that enable a more effective and patient-centric care model,” said Norbert Muhrer, CEO, CINTERION. “We’ve been the premier partner for medical device manufacturers who want to mobilize their products and cut costs while increasing efficiency and we’re excited to work with other companies to further this crucial improvement in healthcare.”

 

CINTERION technology is integrated in medical devices and solutions that cost effectively improve quality of care in three ways: better management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and pulmonary illness by enabling a more efficient exchange of health information between patients, care teams and family members; more independent living for aging people by extending the reach of AAL (ambient assisted living) homecare systems; and by enabling more active, healthier lifestyles by improving communication of personal health information between people and their fitness trainer, coach or wellness program.

 

“Continua Health Alliance is dedicated to enabling a marketplace of connected, personal health solutions to empower consumers and patients to take control of their personal health,” said Rick Cnossen, Continua Health Alliance president. “We’re excited to work with CINTERION to help make this connectivity at the enterprise level a reality so patients can stay connected to their healthcare providers.”

 

CINTERION is at the forefront of the M2M industry in mHealth and has recently been honored with five prestigious awards for industry-leading mHealth applications including: GSMA’s Best Embedded End-to-End Service Award, Connected World’s Value Chain Award, Oracle’s Duke’s Choice Java Innovation Award and two Mobile Health Expo Awards for Best Mobile Healthcare Device.
